  • "Raw Dog" is the last song officially recorded and released by Dream Theater with former drummer Mike Portnoy before quitting the band.
  • In the other hand, "Shattering the Skies Above" is the first song officially recorded and released by Trivium with then-drummer Nick Augusto.
  • The Lyrics of Taking Dawn's "This is Madness" make references to the movie "300". (which is a loose reference to Kratos as he was a Captain in the Spartan army)
  • Kratos pose resembles his pose in the collection God of War Saga
